I posted on Twitter that I got my new polish in the mail from ManGlaze, Ink this week. My order consisted of one bottle of matte white polish name Mayonaisse, or The Holy Crap! :)
I am terribly and deeply in love with all the other products that ManGlaze has produced, most especially FuggenUgly, the original matte grey polish (although it has experienced a few formula changes since first appearance in the mid 2000's.)
Anywho. My first impression of this polish was that it was a looooot stickier and thicker than other polished I have used in the past. It is also NOT a "Wite-Out" type of white. It has a delicate shimmer that is pretty much unnoticeable once the polish is dry, but while it is being applied, it is quite pretty!
Now, I am not the world's most amazing polish applying-person, so please forgive my shoddy work. The day I got this polish, I was sitting at my computer, put it on my nails and after the first round I ruined it.
It does NOT dry completely for a while. The outside will look dry, but it is not. I do realize that this could be a problem with application on my part, too, so please bear with me.
(P.S. If you want this polish and need some amazing tips, go to this blog post on www.scrangie.com: http://www.scrangie.com/2010/10/man-glaze-mayonnaise.html She has some really awesome tips and they did help this second time around.)
So, the rundown on Mayo:
- Beautiful, clean white without being stark, yellow or chalky
- Thick, need a steady, smart hand to apply without streaking. Also many coats.
- Takes a bit longer to dry than most other nail polishes. Certainly NOT one of those polish-and-go polishes.
- Awesome fantastic matte. LOVE.
- I need MORE PRACTICE!
I need to get a brush to clean up my cuticles, but for this I just used a small knitting needle to get in my cuticles since I kept getting the polish up under them. Sheesh!! Hopefully next time I do a mani I will take pics in the day time... And clean up my mess. :P
How do you like this white??
